Anyone recommend dermabrasion for dermal melasma that's not responsive to any other treatment? Is it very risky?

Dermal melasma and Melarase creams

I would suggest an alternate plan that includes Melarase creams, Melapads, light chemical peels, and fractional laser for your melasma. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles

Thanks for your query.If you are looking for dermabrasion then surgical dermabrasion is a good option as it erodes till the dermal layer giving you a new skin. Apart from that tca peel, q switched ndyag is a good option. You can show it to a dermatologist and after physical examination they can guide you better.All The Best
